Since early December we have been supplying the Rotary Club in Burton with a 4x4 110 Hard Top to pull Santa’s sleigh to raise money for local charities.
Every year Burton 204 Round Table collect money with Santa in the surrounding town and villages throughout Burton-Upon-Trent in Staffordshire. Over the past ten years they have managed to raise an incredible £80, 000 for local charities.
This year SHB couldn’t resist getting involved becoming Santa’s little helpers for a few nights a week agreeing to supply a 4x4 vehicle free of charge to get Kris Kringle’s sleigh off road collecting as much money as possible.
Andi Jepson said: “It’s always great to get into the Christmas Spirit with all of the children’s faces lit up when they hear and see the sleigh. We are really grateful on behalf of the children of Burton and Round Table to all of our partner groups helping us collect and also to SHB for the very generous loan of our tow vehicle which made sure the trip from the North Pole down to Burton was possible every Sleigh Run.”
The 4x4 has been utilised on several evenings this month on the run up to Christmas. It was returned to SHB on Monday 22 December and helped Santa raise over £7000 for local charities.
